"Double check the compass connector. I had the issue a few times and every time the solution was because of the female connector of the compass. Check that the 3 small plugs are well inserted inside the connector."

Compass calibration stuck and failed

Hello,I have a new tricopter frame with APM 2.6 on it. When I try to perform a compass Live calibration, it starts, but get stuck with only 3 samples saved. The figure continues to spin, but it does not take any other point.I have checked and my board provides 3.28V correctly on the I2C port.I have tried it with two APM 2.6 boards. I have tried it with USB connection but also with 3DR radio and I get the same results. Because of that the compass initialisation always fails.I have tried with…See More

Cannot connect APM with telemetry

Hi all!I have my new 433MHz air module. I have set both ground and air module with exactly the same settings. Now when both are powered, green led is fixed on both and both have blinking red led. So they have a bounded connection and transmit something. But somehow I cannot connect the APM. When I select the right port (COM8) and 57600 as baud rate, it just cannot find the other. Here below is the configuration.…See More
